All good books with good intentions...but...
I was struggling majorly in 8th grade. I felt like my life couldn't get any better...like I was a terrible person and daughter who could not do anything right. I had felt like that from about the age of 12 and by then I was looking for a way out, a way to escape. My mom had bought the color series for me for Christmas and I was totally pumped to read them. However, when I got to the color me scarred book...I actually took that story as an idea. I thought "maybe I should try cutting, and maybe it would help:' So, before long i was cutting and I couldn't stop. I did it every day multiple times a day. I have now graduated from high school and I no longer cut, but it is something I have struggled with for years and continue to flee from every day. I am by NO MEANS blaming this book for what i CHOSE to do...but I am saying that we should be careful what we let out young adults read. I had no idea what cutting was until this book, and the book gave me basically step by step instructions on how to do it and how to hide it...although indirectly. I think, for a mature adult these books are perfect...but I think that preteens and teens can be more vulnerable to them. Other than that, I have always loved Melody Carlson, and I still do. I have read many of her books and each can be very beautiful and life changing in a positive way. I love you Melody Carlson! I really do.

the only thing i don't like about these books is that after you read a couple it gets kind of old how they all end the same. they all end up with the person finding their love in god and becoming christian and everything just gets all better and it ends there. i like a happy ending, but a bit of a change would be nice? it justs stops being very convincing after a while.
other than that though, the series is really good. me and all my friends agree.

Not ONLY for Christians
Although Melody Carlson wrote these books for Christian Teenagers they don't have to be preachy towards you who aren't. For you who aren't Christians, it can just be a "good book" to read. But for those of us who are Christians we are going to take this gift that has been given to this wonderful author by our God and use these lessons to overcome these challenges that us as Christians face every day of our lives. Thank you Melody and God Bless!
